Autograph Book of Nellie Lauer, Newport Ohio, Wash. Co., March 28, 1892


Lilah Lauer Newport, Ohio, Wash. Co., Feb. 4, 1894


“She loves, but not you she loves,

Not you on whom. She ponders,

When in some dream of tenderness,

Her truant fancy wonders.”


T’were vain to speak, to well to sigh;

Oft, more that tears of flood can tell,

When wrung from guilt’s expiring eye,

Are in final word – farewell – farewell!



Newport Ohio March 29th, 1892

Dear Nellie:-

May you joys be as deep as the oceans and you sorrows as light as it foams.

From you Friend,

Carrie Kerr


A woman nerved is like a fountain troubled.


Hell hath no furry like a woman scorned.


False to my love & what is it to be false?

To lie awake & think & pray for him;

To weep from hour to hour & if sleep sooths mature,

To start up from a fearful dream of him

And cry myself awake: That false, no my love.

“Dear Nellie”

Your life is a book yet unwritten

Scarce traced by a joy or grief

May sunbeams pencil its pages.

The Angels keep watch over each leaf

Let truth be the Scribe of the Volumes.

Its records be written in love

When closed by the hand of the author,

May the pages be continued above.

A token of remembrance

From Your Friend and Schoolmate, Florence Wright.


Nov. 30th, 1892

Dear Nellie

When the golden sun is unkind,

And your heart is light and free,

When of others you are thinking

Will you sometimes think of me?

Your Friend, Mary Echols


“There are a thousand nameless ties,

Which only such as feel them know,

Of hundred thought, deep sympathies, and untold fancy spells,

Which throw o’er ardent minds & faithful heart.

A chain whose charmed links so blend

That the bright circle but imparts

Its force in these fond words – My  Friend!”


Dear Nellie

Roses are red

Violets are blue

Sugar is sweet

And so are you.

Your Cousin, Nellie Kraft


Remember well and bear in mind

A trusty friend is hard to find.


A might pain to love it is

T’is a pain that love to miss

But Ah! It is the saddest pain

To love and not be loved again.


Newport Ohio, April 19, 98
